                    CALL FOR PAPERS

The Analytic Virtual Integration Cyber-Physical Systems (AVICPS)
workshop focuses on analytic techniques that enable the early
discovery of faults in CPS before the system is integrated or its
parts are built. Such an approach is known as analytic virtual
integration. The objective is to discover and resolve problems early
during the design and implementation phases where cost impact is low.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
* A quantitative and early analysis of end-to-end system
  architecture performance that incorporates realistic hardware
  details (e.g. multi-core, memory architectures, I/O,
  network-on-chip, etc.) and workloads (e.g. video streams,
  weather data, GPS, critical messages, etc.)
* Fault tolerance technologies for handling the combination
  of faults in computing and communication hardware and software
  and physical system disturbances.
* Safety analysis such as model checking for mixed criticality
  CPS applications (e.g., flight management systems and safe
  interoperability of medical devices).
* System level optimization technologies that support the
  combinatorial optimization of task scheduling and allocation,
  I/O, and network traffic routing.
* Security protocol development and verification techniques for
  CPS applications.
* Modeling, simulation, and verification techniques for virtual
* Models for describing or quantifying the environment that
  systems must operate in.
* Quantitative measurements of the advantages of virtual
* Formal methods for defining and reasoning about internal and
  external interfaces of the system and its parts.
* Cross-domain compositional theories and technologies for CPS.


The AVICPS workshop welcomes original contributions on
theoretical foundation, tools, and evaluations.  Of particular
interest are case studies on challenges of expressing properties
of systems in terms of their components and the architecture
that governs their interactions. Both solutions and open problems
are welcome.

Researchers and practitioners are encouraged to submit two types
of papers:

 * Research papers that present novel ideas, mature tools,
   results, and advancement of the state-of-the-art.
 * Position papers that describe ongoing work, less
   mature work, or new research directions.

Submissions should be no more than 8 pages (for research
papers) and 4 pages (for position papers) in two-column format.
Templates and author guidelines are available for LaTeX and
Microsoft Word. All figures and references must fit within the
specified page limits.


Authors of accepted papers may choose one of the following

 * To include their paper in formal electronic proceedings
   published by LiU Electronic Press. The proceedings are
   given both ISBN and ISSN numbers. Authors retain the
   copyright of their work.
 * To not include it in the proceedings, thus make it possible
   to refine and submit the work elsewhere. Only a title and a
   short abstract of the paper will be available in the
   proceedings. An informal copy of the accepted paper will
   be available on the AVICPS website.

Regardless of the author's choice of dissemination, the reviewing
process and the presentation time at the workshop will be the same.
For all accepted papers, at least one of the authors must register
and present the paper at the workshop.
